For Students

Interested in a 485 research credit? We are looking for research assistants each semester (fall, spring, and summer). In our lab, we investigate what infants know about the physical properties of objects. Responsibilities include testing infants, preparing stimuli for experiments, data recording and entry, and other lab duties. If you are interested, please call 979-862-8934 or contact us at infantcoglab@tamu.edu. Assistantships are for 485s only; we do not accept volunteers at this time.
